HOW TO TAKE PART
Anglers can visit any trout fishery within the UK who has joined Trout Fisherman magazine's TROUTMASTERS scheme. There are 100s of waters across the UK who are currently taking part in the scheme, and to see the whole list, click on the link at the bottom of this page.
You will be charged the normal day-ticket cost to fish (rates vary at different fisheries). Once a fish has been caught, fill in the TROUTMASTERS form which should be located in the fishery and then either the fishery or the angler should send the form to the TROUTMASTERS office (freepost - no stamp is required). All details must be filled in on the form, and signed.
Once received at the TROUTMASTERS office, the entry is then added to a database and at the end of each month the top three catches from each fishery is calculated and badges are sent out to the captors of the winning fish. Their details will then be recorded in the next available issue of Trout Fisherman. Look out on the web each month for dates.
All badge winners will be invited to a fish-off from the fishery they won their badge at. This happens from February – May each year. The winners from each fishery then go on to the final. Click belowto view TROUTMASTERS Fish-off / Senior & Junior Finals.

If you have any TROUTMASTERSqueries, please contact Samantha Rees, TroutMasters co-ordinator on 01733 395157 or email email@example.com
RULES & MECHANICS
Troutmasters is the largest trout fishing competition of its type in Europe, involving the ordinary, non-match angler (aged 14 and over for senior competition or 13 and under for juniors).
Anyone catching a large trout on any registered Troutmasters Water should be asked if they would like to register for the competition.
At the end of every month, the three entrants who have caught the top three fish at each water will receive a Troutmasters cloth badge.
At the end of the year, all badge holders will be eligible to enter a fish-off at their qualifying water to determine who will represent each water in either the Senior or Junior final.
The 2017 competition will run from 21st December 2016 to 20th December 2017.
Each monthly competition runs from 21st of one month to 20th of the next month.
All official Troutmasters forms must be completed and witnessed by a fishery official and forwarded to Trout Fisherman within five days.
Fishery staff are not eligible to enter the competition.
Anglers can enter fish caught on any method so they can win a badge. But the Senior and Junior finals remain FLY only
The competition is only open to purchasers of day, week or season tickets at registered Troutmasters Waters.
Entrants must be aged 14 & over to enter the senior competition or 13 & under to enter the junior competition.
Two separate witnesses are required – one to the catch and one to the weighing. Entries are not valid if these sections are not completed.
If a fish is released alive, it MUST have been witnessed by an official member of the fishery staff, and weighed on an approved scale.
Stillwater Salmon can be entered.
All fish-offs must be policed and run by individual waters. All fisheries will be sent a set of recommended guidelines for running a fish-off.
Fishery managers must notify Trout Fisherman of fish-off winners by the deadline given. Late entries will not be eligible to take part in the final.
Trout Fisherman reserves the right to select the final three badge winners allocated at each final every month. The editor’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. Trout Fisherman is at liberty to withdraw any water or angler from the competition – no reason need be given.
Troutmasters Fish-off / Senior & Junior Finals
The Senior Final is at Draycote Water, Monday 9 October 2017
The Junior Final is at Thrunton Long Crag fishery, Saturday & Sunday July 22-23, 2017
Fish-off details will be posted on this page from January 2017 as and when fisheries confirm their dates. The Senior and Junior fish-off’s at each fishery will be held on the same day and classed as two separate competitions. Letters to all qualifiers will be sent out from February 2017 (again when fisheries confirm their date).
Any further questions?
If you have any Troutmasters queries, please contact Samantha Toombs, Troutmasters co-ordinator on 01733 395157 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Troutmasters is the premier flyfishing competition in Europe which is now in its 37th year and is a key element in Trout Fisherman’s relationship with its readers. We are keen to get as many anglers young and old included as possible, therefore we are relying on you to encourage ALL your customers to enter – in turn raising the profile of your fishery and generating more angler visits, giving you more revenue.
To help you promote Troutmasters we will send you a sign which can be placed at the front of your fishery to say you are a Troutmasters water. You will also receive posters to be placed inside the fishery along with a form dispenser to go on your counter with entry forms for both seniors and juniors. In return, you’ll get monthly promotion via the Troutmasters listings pages in Trout Fisherman magazine, which is Britain’s biggest stillwater trout publication. And, if you send your reports/news/photos directly to us in the office, you’ll also get coverage on the Troutmasters web pages instantly as well as in the magazine via our Troutmasters news and picture gallery.

TIMINGS AND MECHANICS
- The 2017 competition will run from 21 December 2016 to 20 December 2017.
- Every month, the captors of the three largest fish caught on each designated Troutmasters water will receive a Troutmasters cloth badge and will be eligible to take part in the fish-offs at the end of the competition.
- The fish-offs will continue to be held by each Troutmasters water in order to determine who will go through to the Final. These will take place in early 2018 and the finals take place in July for the juniors and October for the seniors.
- Although all Troutmasters waters are expected to hold and police their own fish-off, all administration will be co-ordinated from the Trout Fisherman office.
- Can we please point out that you must provide a date for a fish-off, even if the anglers don’t want to come to the final they may still want to be involved at the fish-off. All fish-off winners will receive a letter inviting them to the final and will also receive a winner’s certificate.
